Trend Marine works with Sealine on UV screens

Taylor Made Group's U.K. subsidiary - specialist yacht and superyacht glass producers Trend Marine Products Ltd. - and yacht builder Sealine International introduced a joint engineering project to reduce ingress of harmful rays from the sun.

Trend Marine has developed chemically toughened laminated screens incorporating an interlayer that filters out 98 percent of ultraviolet rays. Because of the size and shape of the screens, Trend Marine has sag-bent and chemically toughened the glass in its in-house facility in the U.K.

“Trend Marine has really worked extremely hard on this project and delivered us a next-generation product that sets Sealine apart from our competitors,” Sealine International supply chain director Mark Turner said in a statement.

“In this competitive yacht market, it’s additional features and benefits that our customers seek. The benefits of this market-leading research can be seen as better fabric life and lower heat transmission into cabins, which ultimately results in lower running costs and longevity with enhanced customer comfort.”
